First Person Arts Festival

Philadelphia, PA 19019

Our Mission
First Person Arts' mission is to transform the drama of real life into memoir and documentary art to foster appreciation for our unique and shared experiences. We believe that everyone has a story to tell, and that sharing our stories connects us with each other and the world.

Our Vision
Our vision is to be a platform for artists and everyday people to share the compelling personal stories they must tell now. We will listen to the issues that matter to them and lift up their voices through our programs.

Our History
Vicki Solot founded First Person Arts in 2000 as a response to the growing interest in memoir and documentary art. Solot appreciated the resonance of personal stories and recognized their value as a means of bridging cultural and ethnic divides. With the involvement of a visionary board, First Person Arts set out to support the development of new memoir and documentary work and to create opportunities for it to be seen and appreciated.
